I have the money to finally buy a meat grinder and these are my two choices. The Gander Mountatin meat grinder which resembles the Cabella meat grinder will cost me 332 dollars the LEM Big Bite #8 will cost me 313 dollars. I will probably grind one Boston butt during any giving session to make sausages. Please advise me on which one to get. This money for a meat grinder is burning a hole in my pocket!!!
